Egypt says archeologists have revealed an old tomb with mummies accepted to go back around 2,000 years in the southern city of Aswan.

The Antiquities Ministry said in an announcement on Tuesday that the tomb is from the Greco-Roman period, which started with Alexander the Great in 332 B.C.

It is situated close to one of Aswan's milestones, the Mausoleum of Aga Khan, who campaigned for Muslim rights in India and who was covered there after his passing in 1957.

The announcement said archeologists discovered relics, including enriched covers, statuettes, vases, pine box sections and cartonnages — pieces of cloth or papyrus stuck together. 


Egypt frequently declares new revelations, wanting to goad the nation's travel industry part, which has endured significant misfortunes amid the unrest following the 2011 uprising against despot Hosni Mubarak.
